Graphic 45 Twelve Days of Christmas Tag Book in a Box


Well hello there Paper Peeps and happy Sunday! I’m super excited to share the much requested Christmas Tag Book in a Box. The Halloween version was gone in less than a day and I was so sad that not everyone could get one : (  For this kit I used all Graphic 45 Twelve Days of Christmas Papers and let me tell you it was so great to work with the fabulous vintage images and patterns! Of course I added beautiful trims  from Really Reasonable Ribbon and fun embellishments…because that’s how I roll Christmas style!

IMG_4072IMG_4073IMG_4075IMG_4074IMG_4076So I’m thinking there are like a million uses for this box right??? Add pictures and memories and display with your favorite seasonal decor. Add gift cards to make it a personal family gift or add cards with your families cherished holiday recipes!  This would be a fabulous gift : ) Just sayin!

Ooops…forgot about Friday Funday : (


Oh my goodness I just realized that I totally forgot to post Friday Funday! I have no excuse except that we’ve been moving the studio, and crazy busy filling orders and a sick kiddo.

friday fundayOur winner for week 2 …..#7 Megan Fuchs

I don’t know what my crafty style is, but I do love things with patterns and shapes. I mostly enjoy looking at pintrest for ideas. My favorite thing to create is art using clay as a medium. I took a ceramics class and I loved using my hands to make projects. I am terrible at the wheel, but I have made a beautiful vase that looks like the honey bin of pooh. My mom loves it and puts her flowers inside. Random silly about me is that I love sports: baseball, football, basketball, and soccer. I always say that I am terrible at these   sports but am the biggest cheerleader/fan.

Megan please contact me at with a mailing address and which creativity kit you would like for your prize.

This weeks questions…..

What new craft technique would you like to try? For me it’s encoustics art….but I am just afraid of the fumes. I don’t want my art to kill anyone lol.

What is your best craft supplies organization tip? I use tons of little drawers to keep my supplies separated but easy to get out and put away. I know if I have to pull out bins with lids I will not put things away because I am lazy. Just kidding….no really!

Random Silly Thing….I am terribly afraid of heights. I would rather be standing naked in the middle of a busy intersection with snakes and bugs on me and set on fire than go mountain climbing. Okay now it’s your turn to play along.

Each week on Friday I’ll ask a fun question or two so I can get to know you all better. You have until Thursday at noon to leave a comment with your answer and I’ll draw a name at random from the comments on the post. One lucky Peep will win a creativity kit of their choice from our selection in the Etsy Shop.  I’ll announce the winner when we post Friday Funday for the following week.  If this goes well…we’ll play along every week…so make sure to tell your friends to join in too.  Please play fair….only 1 comment per person per IP address that way you’ll all have the same chance to win…so no comments from your kids,cats, or dogs lol. Prize will be shipped within the continental United States only…sorry to my international followers. This is a family friendly blog….so please keep all comments nice : )

Okay that’s all for me. Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G

Office Supply Challenge with Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog


Hello again Peeps. Yes I know this is the second post for Polly’s today…we are just busting with loads of creative projects to share! This time I’m posting my project for CHACB we’re having a new challenge : )

Challenge #16 Who Loves School and Office Supplies?

Most paper crafters also love school and office supplies. We love crayons, markers, shaped paperclips, notepads, folders, and more! If you hoard school and office products, get them out! Use them up! Use at least one item that is really a school or office supply on your project.

IMG_4049I used a file folder, a brad and 2 different kind of paper clips. I also consider crepe paper to be an office supply….that is if you worked in a really fun office!

IMG_4051The fun vintage images are from Crafty Secrets, I created the flowers with my Heartfelt Creations stamp, and the fabby paper is from my favorite Graphic 45.
